Both natural and man-made lighting help with the illusion of space. For a darker room, find ways to bring in more full-spectrum natural light. If the room does not have sufficient lighting, it will feel cramped. This is worsened by close-proximity furniture arrangements, such as coffee table, end table, sofa, chair and love seat combinations in a smaller setting. Corner lamps, wall sconces and centrally hanging lights on the ceiling help brighten a room if natural lighting is not available and help create a visually larger space. This applies to any setting home or office. Natural lighting is preferred above man-made lighting because it shows off colors better and adds to the visual space of a room by bouncing off reflective surfaces. Consider skylights or large windows if you want more natural light, or use sheer drapes and curtains to allow the maximum amount of light from your current windows.
Used directly around features to be highlighted, directional lights are great as task lights and for highlighting artwork such as sculptures. Dimmer directional lights may be used to highlight paintings/photographs to prevent glare on the glass.
Task lighting should enable you to groom yourself effectively, not create shadows and special effects. For task lighting around the mirror, position the lighting on either side of it. The lights should illuminate the person before the mirror rather than focus on the mirror. On the whole, the lighting should light up your face fully and minimize shadows under your eyes and chin. You may also want to install lights inside the bathroom cabinets so it is easier to look for things placed inside. Also install light fixtures over the bath area and toilet.
LEDs are able to display a wider spectrum of color than incandescent, which means you'll be spoilt for choice with options ranging from purples to yellows, reds, and whites- all in different tones. However, going with a more traditional option like soft white or yellow is probably a good idea in the long run, as these shades tend to mimic the warmth of natural light and feel more familiar in general, said Mario, founder, and CEO at Sonica Led. Plus, you have to choose something neutral that you'll be satisfied with in the long run, as LED bulbs tend to have a really long life span.
